A great white shark was spotted this week in the waters off the Spanish Balearic Islands. This is the first such sighting by scientists in at least 30 years, a marine conservation group said on Saturday.
The Alnitak group took pictures of the shark on Thursday in the seas off Cabrera Island, saying it was five meters long. He followed him for more than an hour, said on his Facebook page and posted a picture
"In recent years, there may have been unconfirmed sightings and various rumors, but this is the first scientific confirmation of the presence of a Carcharodon (Great White Shark ) in Spanish waters in at least 30 years, "he wrote.
Alnitak said the shark had been discovered when scientists were on a mission to obtain information on sea turtles, sperm whales, dolphins, manta rays and red tuna.
The team is also looking for tiny pieces of plastic in the sea.
